Papageorge Teaching Award

Alumni Board President Ramon Suarez and Joyce Doyle

The Emory Medical Alumni Association awarded internist Joyce Doyle the Evangeline Papageorge Distinguished Faculty Award. Medical Alumni Association President Ramon Suarez presented the award to Doyle during the medical school’s commencement on May 10. Suarez said the Class of 2010 selected Doyle because “she leads by example and always puts the patient first. She reminds students that patients are human beings.” Doyle has served on the faculty since 1994 and is based at Grady Hospital. She directs the internal medicine residency program and serves as a society adviser.

Papageorge taught biochemistry at the medical school for 30 years before becoming the first dean of students and first female administrator of the school. She retired in 1975 and died in 2001.

Papageorge’s current-day counterpart, J. William Eley 79C 83M 86MR 89FM 90MPH, executive associate dean for medical education and student affairs, received the Emory Williams Teaching Award.
